Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption Official Social Club Multiplayer Event on Xbox LIVE (June 18th)
(Players stand off to begin the latest Red Dead event in the live streaming Social Club Multiplayer Events Series...)
Big thanks to everyone who joined us for the most recent Red Dead Redemption event on Xbox LIVE - the latest installment in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series of live streaming online sessions with Rockstar along with live chat at the official Events page (www.rockstargames.com/socialclub/multiplayer).
Here's a proper recap from the event complete with stories and screens - and be on the lookout later this week for our announcement of the extended new calendar of events for the months of July through September.
We began the evening last Friday with 16 players in a round of Gang Shootout in the broad daylight of Tumbleweed. The opening Showdown began with our own RedDeadDev5 landing a head shot on WestSide2k6 and culminated with a first win for the Lawmen. During the match, RyanCable223 took cover out in front of the mansion, but RedDeadDev3 parlayed a little Dead Eye to take him down. YOURHEADGOBOOM got revenge for his fallen teammate by rounding the church and putting a bullet in RedDeadDev3's back. Congrats to the Lawmen for winning the match with $5000: Doctor Of Sound, Jediiz, dr suess16, xXuNRe4l FiReXx and four Rockstars.
Next, we entered Hold Your Own in Chuparosa with 16 players. Entering the town from the outer wall, RedDeadDev3 spotted Los Payasos. Using crates and sandbags for cover, RedDeadDev3 waited for the perfect moment and blasted Los Payasos with a shotgun. Robopimpbot ran out into the open area in the middle of town and quickly met his end after receiving a bullet fired by RedDeadDev3's Bolt Action Rifle. RedDeadDev3 was able to get a bag capture of his own to help his team take the lead 2-1, but the Rebeldes came back and won 3-2. The winning team included Los Payasos, Anubas911, GeneralAfroKing, Robopimpbot, B4 Hoi, shollis39, TheMonkeySong00 and Ron GZ006 HK.
We stayed in Chuparosa for the next match but brought in new players and switched modes to Grab The Bag. After the Showdown ended, x UCK x OSI 79 was the first to grab the bag, but WarnedAce shot him down and teammate Dan the Statman was there to pick up the bag and get a capture. The Miners defeated the Rockstars and others 7-1, the top player being Scoonie. The Miners included Scoonie, Dan the Statman, WarnedAce, xX Noobhuntr Xx, Vincent Dropher, Legit Sneak, Tiny Loz and SilentStriker49.
Nearing the end of the event, we gathered a few players into a round of Shootout in Armadillo. After o EnV won the opening Standoff, the dead re-spawned and scattered about the town. Near the schoolhouse, RedDeadDev3 managed to shoot and kill MrThankUvryMuch and o EnV before taking a bullet to the back from GNG Monster NRG. Congrats to MrThankUvryMuch for winning with $2000, GNG Monster NRG for coming in second place with $1950 and to o EnV for coming in third with $1600.
In the last Competitive Multiplayer round of the evening, we entered Gold Rush with a few brave players in MacFarlane's Ranch. Newby Scooby started the Standoff by with a buckshot to RedDeadDev3's face. Twizkid Kris was able to narrowly defeat GNG Monster NRG, Newby Scooby and RedDeadDev3, ending with 5 captures.
And in what has quickly become something of a tradition with Red Dead Redemption, we ended things off with a grand finale of Free Roam. With lots of cougar huntin', gang hideout challenge action and general mayhem - a great time, and thanks again to everyone who came through and ran amok with us.
